The fact that you weren't smart enough to get into college is lost on NO ONE!
He posted in another thread during the Texas a&m game that he would leave the board if we won more than 2 SEC games. The thread has been deleted though.
I haven't chimed in on Bball but they are hard to watch. IMO the entire game of Bball has devolved for some reason that eludes me. When I was younger no guard in major college Bball would be caught dead shooting under 80% FT's heck some would be well over 90%. When I see guards shooting in the 50-60% range it makes me cringe.
As for our guys fom what I've seen, they can't shoot the ball worth a flip consistently.
Our best player by far is Releford but he's not a shooter. There is no go to scorer on this team as far as I can see. BTW I know that both Releford and Lacey are over 40% from 3 but IMO bombing 3's is not their game.
Great post. Very well coached team. Look at the turnover ratio, great defense, and can win on road. Gottfried was terrible on road.
Issues we have:
opportunity creation on offense
Need improvement on post players.
Need to improve a little on free throws.
We have a young team. We should be really good next year.
Thank you for posting this. You are my hero for today! Agree 100%
Offensively, we haven't had balance. We had a post game with Jamychal, but really struggled making shots last season. This season the post game isn't there as the shots are falling more consistently from the outside. I really though NJ would be a top scorer on the team this season, but maybe he just took advantage of JG being on the floor last season.
I would like to see a couple of things on offense. Would love to see Pollard used in the pick and roll. Think he can get to the rim for passes and make defenses truly account for him. That should open up plays to wings. MG and JC are open on rolls, but are not trusted to get the ball to.
Wouldn't be bad to push ball after misses like someone here said earlier. You see it at times, but there's not a premium on it.
Pushing the ball should be a priority with this team just like defense is. Like I said though I think Grant has so little faith in our offense he wants to slow the game down control the time of posession leaving the other team with as few attempts as possible.

This just further confirms to me that you are watching the same things I watch for. You were very PC in your wording of "mental lapses". I'm more blunt I guess and I call em "WTF moments". Thats what I see from NJ, a lot of WTF moments.
Saturday, You see him going off his left shoulder in the low post, but still shooting with his left? Nick, you aren't fooling anyone lol. Im the "NJ hater" on this board. I know its not right to bash the kids and all but they're open season when they have reputation as being low effort. Its my opinion also that he's just a weak basketball player with no signs of growth to his game (mainly because his effort level is so low). His peak was last season against anthony davis when davis couldn't seem to remember his left from his right when defending NJ.
If you question someones effort like I have with NJ, its better to do so with possible facts (other than the 2 eyes I have). Whats an effort stat? Rebounding. As NJ's minutes are slowly declining in games (thanks to actual improvement from a low post player Moussa), Nick Jacobs is 5th on the team in rebounding. FIFTH! 6'8" 265 lb basketball players should be rebounding specialists. 3.5/game? Guys, thats amazingly pitiful. You wanna torcher yourself? Watch NJ when a shot goes up. Plenty of WTF moments in those highlights.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
Yeah with the exception of the Kentucky game, Jacobs has not played hard all game long all year. And its obvious he doesn't try to improve his game over the offseason.
Grant needs a miracle
